rob: 35 days into the partial government shutdown, still no deal. jillian: the president compromising again asking for a large down payment on the barrier but nancy pelosi still saying no. rob: where do we go from here? joining us is the director of policy studies for the and center for immigration studies thanks for coming on this one. this has nothing to do with congress, this is between the president and nancy pelosi. they are the only two players. what do you think? >> it sure does seem like that and it is not clear what it is going to take to break this impasse at this point. the president has given in time after time. he said okay, not a wall, steel slats, i will take less money. here's my proposal. let's do a bigger deal. nancy pelosi -- rob: not -- given a lot in that way too. >> he proposed to give democrats what they say is one of their
2:16 am
high priorities which is protection for the people with daca and even more people. yet they can't -- he seems to be trying to find what they will accept but they won't even counteroffer at this point and that has to be frustrating as a negotiator when you can't get them to say what do you want? jillian: frustrating for the public to see that happening as well because if they take a look at how the narrative has shifted from the first couple weeks, democrats were heavily saying the president is throwing a temper tantrum, stormed out of this meeting and won't compromise and in the last few days people saying both parties are losing the battle and now the president going back again. do you think americans will read through this and say nancy pelosi is not giving an inch? >> i think the american people do see through it, the democrats
2:17 am
are in denial about the security situation at the border and the impact of illegal immigration on american communities and they have no counterproposal and they are at risk of looking as if they are opposed to common sense border security measures and that cannot be a good look going into the next election. this brinksmanship is political purposes but nancy pelosi is not speaker because democrats won on open borders but because of democrats who won in red district because they acted more hawkish on immigration. rob: they are trying to push a narrative they want border security. here is some video from border patrol in arizona showing -- night vision here. more than 100 migrants climbing over a flimsy fence at the us-mexico border.
2:18 am
this is not near what the barriers the administration has been talking about. if you look at the numbers your 7800, more than 7800 border arrests at the yuma, arizona sector in two month of last year. that is just one portion. it is amazing to see the numbers. >> yuma is part of the border that was approaching operational control but the problem is policies changed, barriers are obsolete and need to be upgraded. the border patrol needs the resources to get boots on the ground and to deter migration. people are coming now because the politics allow anyone who arrives with a child to claim fear of return, and we have to let them in. that is what is driving this and those policies need to be changed as well is more physical
2:19 am
infrastructure at the border. i don't know what more evidence congress needs that this is a crisis. we have no idea who these individuals are and they are settling in communities all over the country and it truly is a crisis situation that needs to be dealt with. heather: some people say they are still getting over, some people look at it, this is slowing them down and border patrol can go and do their jobs. thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. it is 19 minutes after the hour. by now you have probably heard of alexandria ocasio-cortez's plan to tax americans. >> once you get to the tippy top on your $10 million you see tax rates as high 60%, or 70%. jillian: what does donald trump think? he just waited. rob: coca-cola taking time out from the super bowl, the new ad that has lots of people talking, stay tuned.

she talked about taxing people, if you're making more than $10 million a year, for all those dollars above $10 million you will get taxed at 70%. she is getting slammed by the president who says the socialist plan, her plan could leave the us economy looking like venezuela. >> that is a big beautiful area and by far the richest and now it is one of the poorest places in the world. that is what socialism gets you and they want to raise your taxes to 70%. rob: ocasio-cortez wants that 70% tax rate on earnings more than $10 million year. the president's comments come a day after nicholas madero broke diplomatic ties with the us. jillian: general motors shelling out millions of dollars to build high-tech vehicles which will save you money at the pump. rob: tracy carrasco is your with a big investment heading to tennessee.

border barrier. nancy pelosi calls it unreasonable. lawmakers bicker over the shutdown the coast guard is set to miss another paycheck. no end insight thanks to chuck schumer blocking a bill that would have provided much-needed relief. todd pyro joins us with how senators are taking action. rob: more scenes like this are inevitable. >> reporter: coast guard families at food pantries trying to get basic necessities of life. unlike other branches of the military under the defense department which is fully funded the coast guard falls under homeland security which has been impacted by the shutdown. a straightforward bill that would pay coast guard service members, civilian employees and contractors during the shutdown but shutdown politics got in the way with chuck schumer blocking an attempt to bring the legislation to a vote. >> donald trump is responsible not only for thousands of coast
2:32 am
guard personnel not getting paid but hundreds of thousands of other federal employees not getting paid. >> reporter: it was a move that did not go over well with schumer's fellow senators like rick scott. >> they cannot quit their jobs because we are not paying them. they can go stop and get another job. the coast guard can't. they are part of the military and chuck schumer stopped it. >> reporter: the head of the coast guard echoing frustration on the shutdown. >> you as members of the armed forces should not be expected to shoulder this burden. it is an acceptable the coast guard men and women have to rely on food pantries and donations to get to day-to-day life as servicemembers. >> reporter: roughly 50,000 coast guard retirees and survivors will miss their first paycheck as they are paid monthly.

2:34 am
we have a unique opportunity to make an impact using oil. as we look at this graphic, only 6% of our oil comes from venezuela but 39% of the oil venezuela ships outcomes here which means if we cut them off in some way it could really hurt this regime. what do you think? >> it would have an impact but i don't know that is a salutary effect because the chinese are investing heavily in venezuela, they likely by the oil from someone else. from my point of view we have lots of extra oil in texas because of the show boom. we been exporting that in those refineries and folks don't realize this but most refineries are focused on a particular source because oil varies from place to place. rob: the regime blaming this
2:35 am
collapse in prices of oil, $100 a barrel, it plummeted. they are saying that's the reason it is falling apart in their country. all the prices in oil that haven't seen a freefall like venezuela. why is it so bad? >> alexandria ocasio-cortez type economics. the stuff is warren and cortez are trying to sell us are the kinds of policies they have in venezuela. good old-fashioned soviet style socialism, more like -- it doesn't work. country after country. it has some kind of dictatorship, failure of democratic processes. it is a terrible corrupt place. and south of the rio grande these days. rob: it certainly is a mess. the decline happened in a matter of years was a pretty quick
2:36 am
decline. should capitalist societies take note of that? is there a lesson to be learned? >> two things. these kinds of things, wealth tax at 70%, redistribution policies, only work when oil is $100 a barrel. the second thing is it segues to the immigration problem. not just a deal is coming across the border but millions of people come into america to change the culture so all of a sudden we are starting to do the kinds of things in latin america they do in latin america in terms of public policy and destroy our own democracy. the wall is not about criminals and drug dealers. the wall is about preserving american exceptionalism, culture, so we can continue to be a thriving market-oriented society. rob: people talk about socialism is fair.
2:37 am
everyone treated fairly, there is not as much energy going to the economy. >> everyone is equally miserable. rob: a churchill quote. >> several people said that. as a consequence, why should you work hard? why should you start a business and so forth? if you are going to get taxed at 70% and have your wealth taken away? in postwar britain in the 50s they decided to pay everybody the same so all of a sudden the factories had no skilled workers because why should you learn a trade if you show up and get the same pay sweeping the floors? rob: you make great dreck up -- points as we watch this unraveling wonder what this administration will do about it. >> the fact is if the chinese wants to bankroll it, we have another cuba. >> russia and china have interest there.

2:50 am
taking -- to do democrats he taking them all the way to the house? here to weigh in his ohio democratic state senator and democratic strategists, thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. let's pull up this list of who has announced, let's start with elizabeth warren, kirsten gillibrand, julian castro, kamala harris and tulsi gabb d gabbard, who do you see take you to 2020? >> i have to write it in. one thing we recognize is the path is anybody's game to get out of the primary because there will be so many candidates. we allocate delegates, how you get to the nomination. we need to think about who can compete with donald trump at the general election.
2:51 am
all the people currently announced are in the same lane. very progressive and going to be cutting the vote among themselves. i believe we need somebody who can speak to the middle of the country, reclaim the economic message donald trump has taken. someone like sherrod brown, even to consider the gentlemen, the mayor of south bend, indiana who recently announced who is a total outsider who can basically rise above the chaos and dysfunction in washington. we need somebody who can speak to the middle of the country, who is authentic, someone like sherrod brown or my member of congress, tim ryan who may or may not be considering this but we need someone who can connect and remember the electoral map is the same as the 2016 one. it runs to the midwest and is important.
2:52 am
jillian: donald trump does speak to the middle of the country. who can compete with that? >> we need to change the math. someone like beto o'rourke who could carry texas with 38 electoral votes can actually change the map. most democrats will carry california, carry illinois and new york but beto can carry texas and anyone who can carry texas will change the electoral map. we always try to win the midwest, to try to win the electoral map. of them but he wins texas, not only changes the map for this election cycle but makes it difficult for republicans to win the white house for a generation. the kind of democrat that can change electoral politics for a generation. jillian: sounds like you agree everybody who has announced so far you don't see taking you to 2020 and beyond. you think democrats will take a page out of donald trump's
2:53 am
playbook and the republican playbook and what america wanted in the last election and choose someone not expected to win? >> i will speak to that. a recent poll by reuters asked democratic voters who they would prefer to win in 2020 and who they are looking at as a potential nominee and the number one person or persons that came in was someone who hasn't announced yet. that says something to the fact that we are looking for someone outside the box and not declared. we often point to someone like barack obama who was not necessarily on the radar. jillian: do you think america will vote for another barack obama type? >> we are talking about candidacy, we have a long time to go.
2:54 am
people haven't announced yet. there is a primary process to come, the announcement will be -- people who have already announced like kamala harris, we have some exciting candidates. whoever becomes the democratic nominee and the next president of the united states i can guarantee will keep the government open at least. jillian: nancy pelosi is not willing to compromise. we could talk about that, another topic, the president has said i'm willing to compromise and give you a down payment for barrier and she is still saying no. we are out of time, we have to leave it there. thanks very much. it is 6 minutes until the top of the hour, coca-cola taking a time out from the super bowl but you will see them before the game, your reaction pouring in on a big ad next. ♪ next sunday morning ♪ when you are gone
